So, Russia annexes Crimea and less than 48hrs later voices can be heard on the UVB-76 number station. Not sure what to make of this but I highly doubt it has anything to do with "ionospheric research".



UVB-76, also known as The Buzzer, is the nickname given by radio listeners to a shortwave radio station that broadcasts on the frequency 4625 kHz.[1] It broadcasts a short, monotonous About this sound buzz tone (help·info), repeating at a rate of approximately 25 tones per minute, for 24 hours per day. On very rare occasions, the buzzer signal is interrupted and a voice transmission in Russian takes place.[2] It has been active since at least the late 1970s or early 1980s, when the first reports were made of a station on this frequency.[1][3] Its origins have been traced to Russia, but although several theories with varying degrees of plausibility exist, its actual purpose remains unknown to the public.

Wiki


You can listen to the station live here WebSDR just move yellow arrow to 4625 and click usb for the bandwidth. I could definitely hear some backround noise earlier, no idea what the significance of a squeaky wheel is tho.


Thoughts?

Seems like the activity is over for now. Apparently both 4625khz and 8992khz went totally dead for awhile and both broadcasted voice messages. If you skip over to 8992khz, which is supposed to be a kind of US version of UVB-76, you can still hear some intermittent activity.

The 8992khz vid below is old. The 4625khz vid above is from last night.

Ohhhhh, my. Sounds super creepy.

I have an old friend that is from Russia. Sent her the link to see if there is a translation. I haven't spoken with her in a while, but fingers crossed. Although it may be gibberish code.

Great post!

I'll let you know if I hear back.

I was an active ham radio operator during the time of the Soviet/US "Cold War." A few number stations operated within the bands allocated to ham radio.


This is not a good thing.

Just read the wiki on that station and am going to have nightmares. Oh, my and jeeze.




At 2225 UTC on September 1, 2010, the buzzer was interrupted by a 38-second fragment of "Dance of the Little Swans" from Tchaikovsky's ballet Swan Lake.[16] Four days later on September 5 at 1230 UTC, a female voice was heard counting from one to nine in Russian; just over an hour later, at 1339 UTC, the buzzing silenced for a quiet male voice to read a voice message.[16]

Hams (Ham Radio Operators) have know about this for years. I'm convinced that it has always been a ruse. Just something to keep the alphabet soup boys on their toes!

I'm convinced that it has always been a ruse.

We had a couple Navy Intelligence reservists in our local Ham Radio Club. It was pretty widely known that much of the "stuff" heard on number stations was meaningless to those who didn't know when to start and stop listening. The key was timing.

I' m clueless as to what this all means.

Please let me know why this is not a good thing - I am all ears when the most respected member of ATS has something to say.

i see a lot of flags and suppose most members understand something about this that I do not - someone care to fill me in?

Thanks all.

I've listened to The Buzzer enough times to notice a propagation pattern: you can't hear it (or can barely hear it) on the Twente site at a certain point during the night in the US. It tends to come back around....I want to say around maybe 7-9 am eastern.

Try listening at different times of day, it'll be vary from strong to weak to non-existent.

Edit: I can hear it ok on the Twente site right now, faint, but discernible. And now I'm second guessing myself on that timeframe it's hard/impossible to hear in. Maybe I have the AM & PM mixed up? I'll listen tomorrow afternoon.

Here's a cool site ,it seems these folks here have tried to triangulate on the position of the signals?

So, i watched a certain video. There was this sound . Same as this one. They turned it into data, calculated , turned it into a text that tirned into QR code, which leaded to a password for a file.

The truth this can be some kidnd of message. Did someone decoded it yet?

Yeah, it totally faded out within the last half hour, so I think I have my return-during-US-daylight-hours off by a couple. 10am or thereabouts may be more likely for hearing it start to come back.

If anyone is listening here: websdr.ewi.utwente.nl:8901...
You can tune to 4724.00 and hear coded military messages ("Mainsail" to "Skyking") They were quite numerous earlier, although not anything going on at the moment.
